Break up the monotony of the treadmill, elliptical, and bike this fall and winter with music that will get the heart pumping. When my fave jam comes on my Zune MP3 Player, I find myself running taller and faster, AND BURNING MORE CALORIES!
, ACE, ACSM, Personal Trainer/Fitness Specialist, reviews the Zune MP3 Player and provides you with her exclusive digital music collection.
Microsoft Zune is the perfect workout partner: Never leaves you hanging, ready to run at all times, and cute as a pink button. Zune has very good playback performance of audio, video, and photos; intuitive and colorful interface; good FM radio with RDS; works well with Zune Marketplace software; integrated wireless allows sharing of songs (limited) and photos.
From a Zune 4, which holds up to 1,000 songs, 25,000 pictures, or 12 hours of video, to a Zune 120, which holds up to 30,000 songs, 25,000 pictures, or 375 hours of video, you couldn't go wrong buying this MP3 player for the fitness fashionista that's on your holiday gift list.
You can purchase a Zune at your local Target, WalMart, Sears, or other online retailers. The most inexpensive one retails around $129.
Once you purchase a Zune, load it up for your fitness fashionista with music to get her moving.
Generally, songs of 132 beats per minute or higher are used in group exercise classes, but if you or your fitness fashionista doesn't like the music, the music isn't going to get you to your peak performance.
If classical is what gets you all excited, then darn-it, load it on a Zune and turn up the volume!
Here are some great websites that have the latest hits remixed for a faster, energized beat. You can download them right to your computer and easily transfer the files over to your Zune MP3 Player:
